Tricod Inc K5017 Solar Stone Spot LightTricod Inc’s rock-themed Solar Stone Spot Light seamlessly integrates into a yard to blend into its surroundings by day and then provide light where ever needed come nightfall. Designed to look like a common stone, this spot light will be unnoticeable while not in use and give the appearance of just another rock. The Stone Spot Light can be easily moved and used where desired because it is wire-free with the only catch being that it needs to be left in the sun during the day so that it can charge. When fully charged it will provide as much as 10 hours of lighting time. A photocell sensor will automatically turn the light on at night and off in the morning. The LEDs that power the Spot Light have a lifespan of up to 100,000 hours and the rechargeable AA batteries should last for approximately 2 years before needing to be replaced. The Solar Stone Spot Light is water resistant, corrosion resistant and CE certified. For optimum performance the Spot Light should be put in a place that will receive as much direct sunlight as possible throughout the course of the day. Read more
